Palau Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) and Koror State Animal Shelter working with Ngermid legislator Tito Ringang and hamlet volunteers, organized a successful mobile spay/neuter clinic in Ngermid on May 31 and June 1. Many residents took advantage of this opportunity to bring their dogs and cats to Taoch ra Mechang for surgery.
This service is made possible by a grant from the Australian Embassy Direct Aid Program.The grant enables spay and neuter surgeries to be offered at the deeply discounted price of $5 per animal.
PAWS and KSG Animal Shelter encourages sterilization of dogs and cats, both males and females. Animals that are spayed (female) and neutered (male), will live a longer, healthier life – without complications from pregnancy and injuries caused by roaming/fighting in males. Spay and neutering prevents unwanted births, abandoned animals, and overpopulation. It also helps protect Palau’s unique biodiversity and promotes human health via improved animal health.
Spay and neuter services are offered daily at the PAWS Clinic in Topside and at KSG Animal Shelter in Malakal. More mobile clinics will also be organized to bring spay and neuter services closer to people and their pets.
Please call us at 775- PAWS (7297) for a clinic appointment or to help us plan a clinic in your state or hamlet. PAWS is also looking for volunteers to help in these clinics – if you or someone you know is interested, give us a call.
